A Link TV original production that explores Islam in an age when Muslim extremists are laying claim to the religion. Veteran NPR and PBS journalist, Ray Suarez, hosts a provocative roundtable discussion with American Muslim scholars and, via satellite, Mike Scheuer (AKA "Anonymous"), author of Imperial Hubris and a former CIA expert who has followed fundamentalist Islamic movements for a decade.
The program gives Americans the opportunity to hear rarely-heard Muslim voices, including Shaykh Muhammad Tantawi, Grand Imam of Al-Azhar University in Cairo, the first prominent Shaykh to speak out against Bin Laden after the 9/11 attacks. Video pieces from the Middle East are interwoven throughout the program to give viewers a political and cultural context.

We could use another 999,999,999 more muslims to speak out as well. I hope more moderate voices arise from the clamor.

A very interesting debate/discussion no doubt. I think Sheikh Hamza Yusuf was given a fair chance to speak.
